Scouting the draft: Baylor WR Terrance Williams

Name: Terrance Williams, WR, Baylor

Overview: The Patriots are in need of an outside, deep threat at wide receiver and draft experts, including the NFL’s Mike Mayock, have billed the Baylor senior as someone who can fill the role. At Baylor, Williams perfected the fly and seam routes, using his 4.52 40-yard dash speed to create separation. (His fastest 40 at the combine was 4.40, while notching a slow 4.58 as well.) He tallied an NCAA leading 1,832 yards receiving, catching 92 passes and 12 touchdowns in 2012. However, the knock on Williams has been his inability to run routes well over the middle of the field, failing to fight for extra yardage, and a preference to catch ball with his body and not his hands. He projects easily as a boundary receiver in the NFL, which is what the Patriots are looking for now that Brandon Lloyd has been dismissed.
